Criminal poisoning; clinical and forensic perspectives.

Ed. by Christopher Holstege et al.

Jones & Bartlett


246 pages




In the 28 chapters compiled in this volume, Holstege (medical toxicology and emergency medicine and pediatrics, U. of Virginia) et al. offer healthcare providers, law enforcement, and attorneys a guide to the history, use, and analysis of criminal poisoning. Law enforcement agents and physicians working in emergency medicine, toxicology, and pediatrics around the world address methods of detection for specific toxins that are common, recently prominent, or highlighted in the media, from acids to herbals to drugs of abuse, with case studies and overviews of analytical detection, potential delivery methods, toxicologic mechanisms, effects, and additional chapters on medical serial killers, Munchausen by proxy, and drug-facilitated sexual assault.
